Erasmus+ Exchange Placements

You can only take up a study exchange place at an Erasmus+ partner institution that has a cooperative agreement with your department. The countries taking part in the Erasmus+ programme are the member states of the EU, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey, and North Macedonia.

To search for exchange placements within the existing academic exchange agreements, take a look in our exchange programme database[de]. The database also contains first-hand reports from students and information on:

  • Application and language requirements
  • Lecture timetables
  • Accommodation and support services
  • Number of exchange places

Further information regarding stays in Switzerland or Great Britain can be found here under "Notes".


The monthly funding rate depends on the host (receiving) country and is a grant to cover additional costs incurred when undertaking a placement abroad. The countries are split into three categories.

Testimonial Laura Hahn

"During my stay, I left my comfort zone and made dreams come true. Studying in another country means more than that - it allows you to discover the culture, the fascinating history, the language, the indescribable nature and everyday life."
(Laura, Erasmus+ semester in Italy)

She and other outgoers talk about their experiences abroad in our blog Greifswald goes International [de] and in our Podcast [de].
